After five years’ work researching original material, John and Christine Glynn of Hares Farm House have just produced a 134-page book, fully illustrated, about the history of their house. Entitled SECOND HOUSE ON LEFT IN SURLINGHAM: 400 Years of a Norfolk Farmhouse, it reveals the hidden secrets of the building and traces the fortunes of the families associated with the property since Shakespeare’s time.
It is a valuable resource for Surlingham’s history, in the tradition of Jack Points’ ground-breaking work on the village’s past. Indexed, with footnotes, it is available from the authors at a modest £9.99. Contact them on 01508 538372 Local orders delivered free.
